My self-summary
Hi there, thanks for dropping by.
I'm kind hearted, honest, and well capable of helping out with the odd spider . I also do really good huggage.

The beard has gone now... More or less...
What I’m doing with my life
Looking at some of the profiles on here and feeling inadequate because I've not climbed mount Kilamanjaro or swam with a dolphin.

Writing this screenplay and thinking about the next... Trying not to get distracted by the shiny and new.
I’m really good at
Getting caught in giggle loops.

Making people laugh. I have no idea how I do it.

Not punching people in the face when they say, 'There's somebody out there for everyone'. Really, is there any more infuriating a phrase in the English language? Except for maybe 'Featuring Bono'?

Noticing that people can't quite grasp the concept of "the most private thing I'm willing to admit."
The first things people usually notice about me
I dunno really, you'd have to ask them. I sometimes think I'm quite selfish but friends say I'm one of the most generous people they've met. Contradictions see? I guess we're all full of 'em.
Besides, my friends are probably humouring me :)

I can be cynical sometimes, but I call it a good judge of human nature. I'm honest and possess high moral values. But I'm not above a little mischief now and again.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Yeah, stuff. I like stuff. Here's some. Fresh coffee made with my own slutty red espresso machine, long walks along the beach, roller coasters, NIN, Rammstein, Gary Numan, Beethoven, Rossini, Mozart, Kings of Leon, David Milch, Aaron Sorkin , Homeland, fight club, Chuck Palahniuk, Cormac Mccarthy, New Scientist, NFL Denver Broncos, Bill Hicks, George Carlin, David Fincher, Radio 6 music, minted lamb bologchilli, coffee... Mmmm Soooo Yummy. Oh, and Calvin and Hobbes.

If you've not had the pleasure of Calvin and Hobbes you should check them out. They'll make you laugh, they'll make you cry... All from a boy with his stuffed tiger pal... Genius.
The six things I could never do without
Would not saying family and friends betray me for some sort of sociopath?

Coffee.

Gotta love that Kindle. I tried to resist it. 'I'll never have one of those' I said,' I love books, the feel, the smell of books, I don't want a kindle' I said... Then somebody lent me one for a whole hour...

Laptop with screenwriting software, a place to sleep, imagination. After that it's just stuff... 'The things you own end up owning you'.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The six things that I could well do without.

What I could accomplish with an army of flying robot monkeys.

If I would make a benevolent dictator.

How I wished that "new car smell" was really that new car smell. New cars stink of solvents and plastic. They put that new car smell in later.

Why people describe themselves as "laid back and easy going" and think that's a positive thing. What are they trying to say? That they're just a cliché? That they're flaky? Have some passion for Chrissakes!

How I'd actually cope with the phone call which contained the words 'We really like your script and would like to work with you on it'... The phrase shit a brick springs to mind.

What flower is in season in the Scottish Isles in October and other completely useless stuff in real life but which might add a nice touch to that scene.

Then how I've just completely forgotten what that flower was and wishing I'd saved that web page...

If I'll ever meet a drop bear. Yes they exist. I checked and everything.

Different words for the verb 'walk'.

How I'd really like to live out of a suitcase.
Or London, it's the culture, see?
On a typical Friday night I am
Hoping I'll leave work before 10pm
Planning who I'm going to pay a visit to at the weekend
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ssshhh, I have no real ninja abilities. But don't tell.
You should message me if
Firstly, if you're not too shy to break the ice and you think we'll get along. And please don't be put off by my interest in movies and television. I look upon it largely as research. It's good to have different interests. And it's great to get away from that.

You've not shaved off your eyebrows then drawn them back on again.

You have a passion for something.

You're a kind soul with an artistic bent...

Or you'd simply like to tell me how your day went. :)

Ooo Ooo, wait! If you have a spare ticket for Alton Towers.
